INSTITUTIONAL MISSION 

Oakwood College, a historically black liberal arts Seventh-day Adventist institution, 
founded in 1896, has as its fundamental purpose quality Christian education. Its mission 
embodies access to educational opportunity, academic excellence, and spiritual develop- 
ment for persons reflecting demographic, economic, cultural, and educational diversity. 
Therefore, programs and activities are Christ-centered, designed to integrate faith and 
learning, encourage a vibrant spiritual experience, prepare individuals for the proclamation 
of the second coming of Christ, and provide an atmosphere for appreciation of oneself and 
affirmation of cultural diversity. With its emphasis on excellence in career preparation, 
the institution continues to be "Today's College for Tomorrow's Leaders." 

GOALS 

The mission of Oakwood College can be expressed in six general goals: spiritual, 
intellectual, cultural, personal adjustment, vocational, and physical. 

1 . Spiritual: To provide a spiritual environment and religious instruction that will enable 

the student to reflect fully the image of Jesus Christ through emphasis on the 
development of character and talent, the nobility of ambition, the keenness of 
perception with sound judgment, so that the student is prepared to render 
unselfish service to God and man. 

2. Intellectual: To provide academic programs and comprehensive curricula made up 

of a broad range of degree programs which will allow each student to acquire 
knowledge and skills to grow personally, socially, academically, and profes- 
sionally, and to meet their needs and societal demands. 

3. Cultural: To enrich the lives of community residents and students by serving as a 

cultural and educational center, offering cultural and recreational programs of 
interest and value. 

4. Personal Adjustment: To provide opportunities which will help students identify, 

clarify, and develop their aesthetic, moral, and spiritual values and philosophy, 
through supportive student services programs which facilitate growth and 
success in the academic, social, economic, and spiritual community. 

5. Vocational: To provide for the students courses which will impart skills and 

knowledge in certain vocations best suited to the students' interests and 
aptitudes, while teaching them the dignity of labor through provisions of on- 
campus work opportunities and courses which provide field experiences which 
aid in their choice of a vocation. 



13 



6. Physical: To provide a health and physical education program along with recreational 
activities that will give an understanding of and encourage proper care of the 
body. Consistency in the teaching of good health habits is carried throughout 
the College's food and recreational program. 

CURRICULUM 

The curriculum at Oakwood College reflects very distinctly the educational philoso- 
phy, purposes, and needs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. From its earliest history, 
Seventh-day Adventist education has been multipurpose — a combination of theory and 
practice. Strong emphasis has been given to providing students with a college program 
that would grant them job entry and provide opportunities for the development of a 
personal code of moral and social values for Christian living in contemporary society. It 
is for this reason that the curricular offerings at Oakwood College have a very pragmatic 
character. This is true in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Because 
of the needs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as society at large, Oakwood 
College has developed some disciplines that are almost exclusively professional. However, 
regardless of the amount of vocational emphasis, all baccalaureate and associate degree 
programs have been so organized that there is a common core of general education studies 
required of all students. 

The mission of the College strongly emphasizes health, the importance of service to 
the world, the integration of spiritual instruction and understanding as a part of intellectual 
growth, and the facilitation of cultural and personal affirmation. The general education 
core curriculum includes courses in the philosophy of Christian education, basic computer 
literacy, health and recreation, the humanities, foreign languages, mathematics, natural 
sciences, religion and theology, and the social sciences. Baccalaureate and associate 
degree programs likewise are designed to harmonize with the key elements of the 
College's mission. .:

GOVERNING STANDARDS 

It is the purpose of the College to develop strong men and women with high standards 
of scholarship and the self-discipline necessary for Christian leadership. 

The campus government and discipline, therefore, are founded upon the principle that 
character building is the highest object of education and that a good name, standing for 
integrity, honor, and godliness, is the objective of the student for himself and of the 
College for him. 

Oakwood College is a Seventh-day Adventist college established to provide a Christian 
environment in which students may prepare themselves for service at home and in other 
lands. In order to maintain this environment certain general rules of conduct apply. 

Student Handbook: In every community there are laws. It is the responsibility of every 
student to secure from the Office of Student Services and to read the rules and regulations 
governing student life at Oakwood College, preferably before registration. Familiarity 
with and acceptance of the requirements set forth in this book will make life at Oakwood 
College more interesting and certainly more enjoyable. 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone on his scholarship 
attainment but also upon his general conduct and his attitude toward the community in 



17 



which he Hves. As a citizen of the college community the student must realize that he has 
been admitted to a privileged group and that he has no right to work against that group. 
Any student who violates the rules of the College or whose conduct evidences lack of 
respect for the standards maintained by the College may be asked to withdraw. 

STUDENT CITIZENSHIP 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of entering any depart- 
ment of the College is subject to its supervision and jurisdiction from the time of arrival 
in Huntsville until his connection is terminated by graduation or by any officially 
approved withdrawal. The record of each student is reviewed periodically, and his 
continuation in college is based upon his attitudes and general conduct, as well as his 
scholastic attainments. 

Listed among the government policies of the College are infractions which are 
considered suspendable and may be cause for dismissal or serious disciplinary action for 
the first offense. 

Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of these practices would 
knowingly be accepted at Oakwood College the first infraction may result in dismissal 
from school. 

A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose influence is detrimental 
may be asked to withdraw at any time. 

Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately from the campus and may 
be subjected to charges of trespassing should he return without permission from the 
Administration. 

Leave of Absence; Permission for an ordinary leave of absence from the campus may be 
obtained from the appropriate Residence Dean. Approval must also be obtained from the 
work superintendent. When a leave of absence involves absence from a class, permission 
must be obtained from the Vice President for Academic Affairs. When the leave of 
absence takes a student farther than the city of Huntsville, it must be approved by the 
Office of Student Services. For travelling, written permission from the parent or guardian 
must be on file for every student requesting a leave of absence. Exceptions to this rule 
are granted only to students who are both of legal age and self-supporting. In every case, 
working students must secure the approval of their work superintendent before presenting 
their requests to their respective deans. 

Attendance at Religious Senices: Oakwood College is emphatically a Christian college. 
Attendance at evening worships, chapel, Friday evening vespers. Sabbath School, and 
Sabbath morning church service is a basic requirement. 

Assembly/Absences: All registered students (on and off campus) are required to attend 
chapel. A student is allowed two unexcused absences from Assembly without penalty 
each quarter. A $5.00 charge will be made for each unexcused absence in excess of two. 
Excuses for absences from Assembly must be submitted in writing to the Director of 
Student Services before the very next Assembly. Failure to do this will automatically 
result in an unexcused absence. 

Permanent excuses from Assembly may be granted in the case of unavoidable work 
responsibilities. In order to be eligible for a permanent excuse for a quarter, a written 



18 



request, signed by the work supervisor, must be submitted to the Office of Student 
Services within 2 1 days of the beginning of each quarter. 

Use of Vehicles: Since the ownership and the use of an automobile frequently militate 
against success in college, students are not encouraged to bring automobiles with them 
to the College unless absolutely necessary. Freshmen are not permitted to bring automo- 
biles to the College, or to the vicinity, or to operate automobiles owned by other 
individuals. 

All students, whether living in residence halls or in the community who own or operate 
any type of motor vehicle (car, motorcycle, scooter, etc. must register it with the Office 
of Security at the time of registration for the fall quarter, or within 24 hours of his arrival 
should he arrive after registration has been concluded or within 24 hours of its procure- 
ment within any quarter of the school year. 

Owners must have a valid operator's license and must show proof of liability insurance 
(including medical coverage) at the time of registration and whenever requested by traffic 
enforcement personnel. 

RESIDENCE HALLS 

Students living in college residence halls may not register for fewer than 9 quarter hours 
without permission of the Office of Student Services. 

All unmarried students are required to live in one of the College residence halls and to 
board in the College Cafeteria unless they live with parents or with other close relatives 
in the area. 

When campus housing is overcrowded students age 22 and over may apply to the 
Housing Committee for permission to live in the community. Under special circum- 
stances, students under age 22 also may apply to the Housing Committee for permission 
to live off-campus in an officially approved home. 

Such applications will be acted on only at the beginning of a quarter. Failure to secure 
official approval to reside in the community or to withdraw from a college residence hall 
when directed to do so will invalidate the registration of a student. Students who have 
received approval for off campus living may be called into the College residence halls at 
any time the administration deems necessary for reasons of discipline or under-utilization 
of available space in the residence halls. 

Residence Supervision: Each residence hall is under the direction of a Residence Dean. 
The Residence Deans have general supervision of the well being of the students under 
their charge. 

APARTMENTS 

The College owns thirty units of one-and two-bedroom apartments which are 
available for married students. These apartments rent for reasonable amounts. There are 
also approved apartments in the community, furnished and unfurnished, in which married 
students may live. For information write the Assistant Vice President for Finance.

FINANCIAL AID 

Students applying for the federal Student Financial Assistance programs (known as 
Title IV) must comply with the following procedures in a timely manner. A student's 
noncompliance may result in the loss of potential benefits and will result in a protracted 
and negative institutional registration experience, if the student needs the federal 
resources to pay their educational expenses. 

The student and family members initiate the process by completing and submitting the 
appropriate forms to the indicated services agencies and the Oakwood College Financial 
Aid Office. Untimely compliance will result in late processing of the student's award 
package. 

The following procedures/priority dates are strongly advised: 

1 . Complete the annual Financial Aid Form (FAF) and mail it to College Scholarship 
Service (CSS) by March 15 with the appropriate fee that is indicated in the 
application packet. Do Not Mail the FAF to Oakwood College. Do not use the ACT 
application. 

2. Submit a signed copy of his/her base year FEDERAL INCOME Tax Return to the 
Financial Aid Office. 

Base year is the year that precedes the academic year that aid is being applied for. 
For example, applicants for the 1991-92 academic year would submit their 1990 
Federal Income Tax Return. If the student did not file a tax return, then he/she would 
complete the appropriate section of the OC Verification Worksheet and submit 
copies of their W-2's. 

3. Legal or biological parents of dependent students must submit a signed copy of their 
complete base year Federal Income Tax Return(s) to the Financial Aid Office. If the 
parent(s) did not and will not file a base year tax return, then they must complete the 
appropriate section of the OC Verification Worksheet and submit copies of their W- 

2's. 

4. The Parents Affidavit of Non-support must be completed and notarized for 
independent students (according to the Federal definition) who will not be 24 years 
old by December 31 of the academic year. His document is enclosed in the OC

Financial Aid Packet. 

5. The Oak wood College Verification Worksheet must be completed by dependent 
students and their parent(s). Independent students/spouses must complete the 
worksheet for independent students. Each section must be completed and signed by 
the designated family members and returned to the Financial Aid Office. 

6. Married students who will not be 24 years old by December 3 1 of the academic year 
must have their parent(s) sign the Independent Student Form for Married Students, 
along with the student's signatures and return the document to the Financial Aid 
Office. 

7. Students who have attended other colleges, proprietary, technical, and/or commu- 
nity colleges must request a Financial Aid Transcript Request Form for this 
procedure. Even if you did not receive aid at the other institution, you are still 
required to request the transcript. 

8. The Student Aid Reports (SAR'S) are generated and mailed to the applicant and 
family members. Eligible students for the Pell Grant will have three parts and 
ineligible students will have two. Once you receive your SAR's, check it for 
accuracy of information. These documents must be returned to the Financial Aid 
Office before the student's award package can be determined. 

9. The Student's Use Box, which is located on the back of Part I of the Student Aid 
Report (SAR) must be completed by the applicant. This box has a Statement of 
Registration Status, Statement of Educational Purpose/Certification Statement on 
Refunds and Default, Anti-Drug Act Certification components, and a signature line.

Naturalization Service (INS) status checked by the federal Department of Educa- 
tion and INS and a verifying statement will be indicated on your Student Aid Report 
(SAR). If the SAR statement indicates that you are properly registered with INS, 
then it will not be necessary to submit a copy of your Alien Registration Card; 
otherwise, send us a copy of both sides of the card. 

12. You, your spouse, or your parent must submit official document that substantiates 
your annual amounts of untaxed income for the base year. Untaxed income may

appropriate signatures, etc., it will not be accepted by the Financial Aid Office. 

13. Veterans who receive GI benefit must submit copies of their discharge documents 
and of their annual benefits. 

14. Students applying for a Stafford Loan (formerly named Guaranteed student Loan), 
SLS (Supplemental Loan For Students), or the PLUS (Parents Loan for Under-

to the office before the funds can be applied to the student's account. 



FINANCIAL AID POLICIES 

Satisfactory Academic Progress: 

The concept of Satisfactory Progress goes beyond good standing to mean evidence of 
positive movement toward the student's degree. Participating institutions in the Title IV 
programs are required to establish standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress for 
students receiving assistance through the stated programs: 

* Pell Grant 
*SEOG 

* cws . \ . ^ ' ^. 

* Perkins Loan " 

* Stafford Loan (formerly known as GSL) 

* SLS/PLUS Loans 

* SSIG Programs 

There are two components in the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy. The next two 
sub-sections explain the Qualitative and Quantitative components. 

Qualitative Component 

Recipients of the federal student financial programs must maintain the indicated 
cumulative grade point average for the indicated years of enrollment: 
1st Year 1.70 GPA 

2nd Year 2.00 GPA 

3rd Year 2.00 GPA 

4th Year 2.00 GPA 

Payment of all federal and state resources will be based upon the student's compliance 



35 



with the appropriate cumulative GPA as indicated in the Qualitative Component of the 
SAP policy. Every recipient's GPA status will be reviewed each year during the financial 
aid file verification process. Students with ineligible GPA's forfeit all federal and state 
resources until the cumulative GPA is at the appropriate level. Lost federal/state 
resources are not retroactive after the student regains eligibility in the subsequent 
quarter(s). 

Quantitative Component 

Students enrolled full-time must complete their undergraduate degree in 5 years or 15 
quarters. During this period, the student must successfully pass the number of hours 
indicated below with the cumulative GPA as stated in the Qualitative component.

Reinstatement - Students who lose financial aid eligibility because of failure to maintain 
satisfactory progress toward a degree may reapply for financial aid after clearing the 
deficiency; no aid will be retroactively granted. 

Transfer Students Eligibility for Aid - Transfer students are eligible for federal aid 
during their first quarter of attendance at the college, regardless of their GPA from transfer 
hours. Following the initial term, they must meet the institutional Satisfactory Academic 
Progress Policy, which is based upon the hours and courses completed at the institution. 

Student Withdrawals - Financial aid recipients (students may withdraw from the college 
once during an award year without forfeiting their financial aid (provided the withdrawal 



36 



date is in harmony with the refund policy) for the subsequent quarter. If the recipient 
withdraws a second time, he/she forfeits their financial aid eligibility for the subsequent 
quarter. Eligibility reinstatement will require the student to successfully complete the 
next enrollment period (quarter) using his/her own resources. 

Repeated Coursework - Repeated coursework will not be considered in meeting the 
enrollment status requirements for receiving federal funds. For example, if a student 
registers for 1 2 hours and 4 hours are repeated courses, then the student would only receive 
a Pell and SEOG grant for half-time enrollment. The student would be listed as taking 8 
hours, since the 4-hour course is a repeat. 

Student Appeals Process to the Financial Aid Committee - The appeals process can 
only be utilized for the issues pertaining to the Withdrawal and Coordination of 
Institutional Sources of Student Aid policies. Students must submit their appeals request 
on the Appeals Form (provided by the FAO) to the office of Financial Aid. The student 
will be notified by the FAO of the time, location, and date of the committee meeting. 



HEALTH RECORD 

The Physical Examination Record and the Dental Examination Record are required of 
all new students prior to their admission to the College. These forms must be completed 
by a competent physician and a competent dentist. They are included in the application 
booklet obtainable from the Admissions and Records Office. 

ALL NEW STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT EVIDENCE OF A RE- 
CENT PHYSICAL EXAMINATION BEFORE ADMISSION. 

The Student Medical Expense Fund will provide some financial assistance to the 
student each quarter he/she is enrolled taking eight or more quarter hours. This financial 
assistance is available in case of accident or injury requiring Hospital Emergency Room 
service and/or hospitalization for illness or injury. See Health Service for further details.

ENGLISH PROFICIENCY EXAMINATION 

Each student is required to take a proficiency test in English before the senior year. 
Upper division transfer students who have completed Freshman Composition are required 
to take the English Proficiency Examination during the first quarter in which the test is 
offered. This test is administered as scheduled in the calendar once during the fall and 
winter quarters. If he fails to pass the test twice, he is required to enroll in EN 250, a two 
hour course in English fundamentals, and to pass this course in order to qualify for 
graduation. 

A fee often dollars ($ 1 0.00.) is charged for this test. Note that English Proficiency and 
EN 250 are not offered during the spring quarter. 

EXIT EXAMINATION 

All seniors are required to pass an exit exam prior to graduation. Exit examinations 
may be internal or external, i.e., written by the department or obtained from an external 
source such as the Graduate Record Exam. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

The college grading system utilizes the four point scale. The grade point values are 
outlined below as follows: 

Grade Point 

Grade Per Hour 

A (superior) 4.0 

A- 3.7 

B+ 3.3 

B (above average) 3.0 

B- 2.7 

C+ 2.3 

C (average) 2.0 

C- 1.7 

D+ 1.3 

D (below average) 1.0 

D- ...0.7 

F (failure) 0.0 

FA (failure due to absences) 0.0 



44 






AU (audit) 

DG (deferred grade) 

I (Incomplete) 0.0 

NC (non-credit) 

P/U (pass/unsatisfactory) 

W (withdrew) 

GRADE POINT AVERAGE 

The grade point average (GPA) for the quarter is computed by totahng the honor points 
earned in all courses attempted and dividing by the total hours attempted. (GPA = HP/ 
HA). Credits for which a F, FA, and I are received are included in calculating the grade 
point average. The symbols AU, NC DG, W, and P/U are disregarded in computing the 
grade point average. 

The academic progress record allows for one repeated course without GPA penalty. 
However, the GPA used to determine the eligibility for financial aid includes all work 
attempted. Repeated may reduce the GPA 



PASS/UNSATISFACTORY PROCEDURES 

To qualify for taking courses on a pass/unsatisfactory basis a student must be a 
sophomore, junior, or senior, and must not be on academic probation. No more than 16 
hours may be taken on this basis. The pass/unsatisfactory system applies to elective 
courses only. A pass is equivalent to a "C" (2.0). 

Approval for the P/U option should be obtained at the Admissions and Records Office 
before the close of late registration. Registration changes in the process are final as of the 
last day to drop without academic penalty. 
NOTE: some graduate and professional schools treat the "P" as a "D." 

GRADES AND REPORTS 

Grade reports are issued to the student and to the parents or guardians at the end of each 
quarter. 



ERRORS AND CORRECTIONS 

Upon the receipt of a grade report, the student should carefully check it for correctness 
as to the courses, credits, and grades recorded. Any corrections must be initiated within 
one month. 

DEAN'S LIST 

Students with a minimum grade point average of 3.50, who carry a minimum of 15 



45 



quarter hours with no grade below a B, and no incompletes, are eligible for membership 
on the dean's list. 

HONOR ROLL 

Students who carry a minimum of 12 hours and who maintain a grade point average of 
3.00, or above, during a given quarter with no grade below a "C" shall be considered honor 
students for the quarter. 

HONORS CONVOCATION 

To give formal and public recognition for outstanding scholastic achievement, loyalty 
to College standards, and exemplary citizenship, the College conducts an annual Honors 
Convocation. To be eligible for participation the student must have a cumulative grade 
point average of not less than 3.50 for a minimum of 24 hours earned at Oakwood College 
or a cumulative GPA of 3.25, and a minimum of 33 hours earned at O.C. 

GRADUATION WITH DISTINCTION 

Students are graduated with honors under the following conditions: 

Honorable Mention. A student must have a cumulative grade point average of 

3.00. 
Cum Laude. A student must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.25. 

Magna Cum Laude. A student must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.50. 
Summa Cum Laude. A student must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.75, 

or above. 

INCOMPLETE WORK 

When at the end of a quarter a student is behind in his or her classwork, the teacher does 
not automatically grant a grade of "I" to that student for more time to do the requirements. 
If, however, because of interrupti ve illness or other unavoidable circumstances, a student 
should request the privilege of receiving a grade of "I" (Incomplete) to allow more time 
to fulfill class requirements, that student must apply in time so that a final decision is made 
before the beginning of final exam week: 

1. Obtain and fill out a "Request and Authorization for Incomplete" at the Office of 
Academic Affairs. 

2. Attach a physician's statement if the reason is medical. 

3. Obtain the appropriate signatures. 

4. Return the form to the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, at least five 
(5) working days before the beginning of final examinations. 

An "I" may be changed to a regular grade when the classwork is completed within the 
approved deadline. Such a deadline might range anywhere from a few days to several 
weeks but no longer than the sixth week of the next quarter even when the student is not 
registered the next quarter. The 'T' automatically converts to an "F" if not removed within 



46 



:l 



the prescribed time. Should more time because of further illness or unavoidable circum- 
stances be needed to remove the incomplete, the student may, before the deadline expires, 
request in writing an extension of time from the Academic Policies Committee. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION, SUSPENSION, AND DISMISSAL 

All students whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) is less than 2.00 will be 
placed on academic probation. Retained at Oakwood College under restricted privileges, 
students whose grade point average is less than 2.00 must take part in the program 
conducted by the Developmental Learning Resource Center. Failure of such students to 
take part in the program may result in dismissal from the college. Students below 2.00 who 
fail to make acceptable progress in the estimation of the institution will be suspended. 

Students who have been suspended for the first time because of poor scholarship, are 
not eligible to be considered for readmission or reacceptance until after the end of two 
quarters from the date of suspension. When suspended a second time, students become 
eligible for readmission or reacceptance after one calendar year from the suspension 
date,providing that during that time they have attended another accredited college for at 
least one quarter, carrying a minimum of 12 quarter hours with no grade lower than "C." 
In both cases, to be so considered, the student must apply for readmission through the 
Admissions and Records Office. Any student who, after six academic quarters or 96 
quarter hours, has not attained a cumulative G.P.A of 2.00 will be dismissed. 

A student whose cumulative GPA is below 2.00 is denied permission to represent the 
College in any official capacity or hold office in any student organization, (see Student 
Life section). 

The following is a summary list of requirements for a student on academic probation 
(GPA below 2.00): 

1 . Limit registration to class load of 13 hours per quarter. 

2. Include in class load at least one course in which he or she has received a "D" or "F" 
and/or enroll in a remedial course as counseled by the academic advisor, and 

3. Go to the Developmental Learning Resource Center for assistance. 

Students on academic probation should expect to take more than two years to complete 
the requirements for an associate degree and more than four years to graduate with a 
bachelors degree. 

REMEDIAL COURSES 

Beginning Freshmen entering Oakwood College on Academic Probation must pursue 
a prescribed course of remedial studies during their first year, which may include any of 
the following: EN 095, EN 099, MA 095 and PY 095. These remedial courses, which are 
in addition to the 192 hours needed for graduation, must each be passed with a minimum 
grade of C (2.00). If failed, they must be repeated the next quarter, until passed. 

DEVELOPMENTAL LEARNING RESOURCE CENTER 

The mission of DLRC is to assist students to gain the skills necessary to do 
college-level work. The program, in collaboration with the Departments of Psychology, 
Mathematics, and English offers Scholarship Skills, Basic Mathematics, Basic English. 



47 



and Developmental Reading to select groups of students who need to develop scholarship 
skills. In addition to attending regular lecture classes, students must attend a laboratory 
once a week in Developmental Reading, Basic Math, and Scholarship Skills. The 
laboratory component provides opportunity for individualized instruction consistent with 
student needs and desires. The laboratory setting affords students the opportunity to 
assess their deficiencies, work to correct them, and receive instant feedback. Laboratory 
work is considered for a significant percentage of each student's final grade. Upgraded 
tutorial services supplement the developmental laboratories through cooperative efforts 
of specialists and the tutor supervisor. 

DEPARTMENT CURRICULUM LABORATORIES 

Individual departments of the College may have centers or laboratories for the practical 
use of their students. For instance, the Mathematics Department has a mathematics/ 
computer science laboratory, located in the Science Complex, Building B, designed as a 
center for the reinforcement of biology , chemistry and physics. The Department of Music 
has a music laboratory, located in the Developmental Learning Resource Center, 
designed to help prospective music students overcome deficiencies. The Departments of 
Psychology and Social Work share a computer laboratory located in Green Hall. Other 
departments have seminar rooms and places where students may 
use computers or get special assistance. 

FRESHMAN STUDIES 

The Freshman Studies Program is a composite of diagnostic, instructional and 
supportive services to first-year students. Its purpose is to increase their potential for 
academic success and personal adjustment to the demands of college life. Components of 
the program include: 

Orientation. The week preceding registration for the Fall Quarter of each year is known 
as Freshman Orientation Week. New students admitted to freshman status are expected 
to report as notified and, upon arrival, to participate in all of the scheduled activities of 
the week. These include (a) orientation to the academic and residential requirements of 
the College and the resources that are available to assist all students in meeting them 
successfully; (b) developmental guidance and instruction regarding tasks, skills, and 
attitudes that are essential for academic and personal success. 

Diagnostic Assessment. During Freshman Orientation Week, the American College 
Test (ACT) will be administered to all new freshmen who have not already taken it, or the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). 

Results are used for (1) placing students in appropriate courses of study; (2) fulfilling 
Alabama state requirements for entrance into special programs; and (3) assisting advisors 
and counselors in their work of helping students to plan their academic programs evaluate 
their academic progress, and set realistic personal and career goals. Accumulated data will 
help the College to determine what areas of its programs and services need strengthening 



48 



and/or modification in order to effectively fulfill its commitment to the success of its 
students. 

Academic Advisement and Program Planning. Although their declared interests in 
specific disciplines will be acknowledged, first-year students will be encouraged to 
concentrate on general education requirements for the purpose of academic exploration 
and continuing self-discovery. Freshman advisors, by means of extended interviews and 
performance reviews throughout the year, will assist in the process of confirming or 
modifying the personal interests and aspirations of each student. 

Special Services. Students with special academic and developmental needs will 
receive appropriate assistance from DLRC, the school's learning resource center. 
Assistance will be in the form of individualized course loads, specialized instruction, 
tutoring, and counseling performed by a dedicated staff of professional counselors and 
selected honor students. Referrals for more specialized services will be made as warranted. 



REPEATED COURSES 

There is no limit on the number of times a course may be repeated. The first time a 
course is repeated, the grade for that repeated course will take the place of the original 
course grade. However, any subsequent repeat of the same course will count as hours 
attempted and will be calculated into the overall G.P.A. of the student. 

AUDITING COURSES 

Persons who are interested in auditing courses should register during regular registra- 
tion. 

No credit is given for a course audited and the tuition charged is one-half the regular 
charge for credit. 

A course started on the auditing basis cannot be changed to a credit basis after the first 
week of the course. , .. 

CORRESPONDENCE 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses taken with the Home Study 
International, which is the Extension Division of the Associated Colleges of Seventh-day 
Adventists. 

A maximum of 18 quarter hours (12 semester hours) of correspondence work may 
apply toward a baccalaureate degree program and twelve quarter hours toward an 
associate degree. All requests for correspondence work must be approved by the 
Admissions and Records Office and/or the Academic Policies Committee. 

Ordinarily a student will not be permitted to carry correspondence while in residence 
if the required course is obtainable at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or extension work. In cases 
where this is an absolute necessity, the official transcript for the work completed must be 
in the Records Office by March 15, for Spring graduation. 

Correspondence with a "D" grade or below is unacceptable. No correspondence credit 



49 



will be entered upon the student's record until he has earned a minimum of 16 hours in 
residence with a cumulative average of at least "C" (2.00). Correspondence courses are 
part of the class load. Home Study Institute courses do not meet the Alabama State 
Certification requirements for Education majors. 

ADVENTIST COLLEGES ABROAD 

Adventist Colleges Abroad (AC A) is a consortium of Seventh-day Adventist Colleges 
and Universities in North America under the auspices of the Board of Higher Education, 
General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Washington, D.C. 

The ACA consortium provides opportunities to qualified undergraduate students for 
study in other countries while completing the requirements of their programs at their home 
colleges. This allows students to be immersed in the culture and life of another country 
while becoming conversant in its language. Through such experiences students also may 
gain an appreciation of and perhaps an inspiration for mission or other multi-cultural 
service. (See Admissions and Records Office for details). 

SUMMER SCHOOL 

Under the umbrella of the Graduate Extension Program with Andrews University, the 
College offers brief intensive courses and workshops. Undergraduate courses are also 
offered during the summer. 

RESEARCH AND INDEPENDENT STUDY 

Certain departments offer a course entitled "Research and Independent Study" for 1 to 
4 hours credit to provide qualified students an opportunity to work on problems or topics 
of special interest, to engage in research projects, and to do scholarly study as advanced 
work. Following are fundamental requirements for enrolling in such a course: The student 
will (1) be a junior or senior in residence with at least a B average (3.00), (2) make 
application at the time of pre-registration or registration by conferring with the chair of 
the major department, (3) be a major in the department in which he or she desires the 
course (4) receive in writing the specific requirements and expectations of the course from 
the instructor. Research and Independent Study courses with a minimum of three (3 ) hours 
may qualify as a "writing emphasis" course. 

WRITING EMPHASIS COURSES 

Two writing emphasis courses of at least three hours each are required of all upper 
division students. Each department will designate and supervise at least one required 
course for their majors which will emphasize essay type tests and/or written reports or a 
term paper. A ("W") after a course title designates a writing course. 

TRANSIENT LETTERS 

When a student desires to register at another college or university with the intent of 



50 



returning, he or she may request a "transient letter" from the Admissions and Records 
Office which recommends the student for temporary admission to that other school 
without the student's having to go through normal admission requirements. Transient 
letters, however, are not granted for attendance at colleges or universities within a fifty- 
mile radius of Huntsville during the academic year. 

Transient credit with grades below "C" is unacceptable. Acceptable credit is recorded 
as transfer credit. Students from other schools desiring transient admission to Oakwood 
must provide an official letter of support from the home institution. 

TRANSCRIPTS 

The Records Office releases official transcripts of a student's work at the college upon 
the student's written request. Telephone requests cannot be honored. 

A student may secure an unofficial transcript for his use, but official transcripts must 
be sent directly to other colleges, organizations, and other approved sources. 

The college reserves the right to withhold all information concerning the record of any 
student who has unpaid accounts or other charges or who is delinquent in payment of 
student loans. 

Two weeks after your request is received should be allowed for the processing and 
mailing of the transcript. Official transcripts from other institutions which have been 
presented to Oakwood for admission and evaluation of credit become the property of 
Oakwood and are not reissued or copied for release. Each student is entitled to one official 
transcript without charge. A fee of $2.00 is charged for each additional transcript. 

CLASS ABSENCES 

Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and laboratory appointments. 
Absences are counted from the first official day of classes. If for any reason the total hours 
of absence are double the number of credit hours of the course per quarter, credit may, at 
the discretion of the instructor, be forfeited and a grade of "FA" be recorded. 

Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the student from required 
class work. The student, however, must make arrangements with the teacher for every 
anticipated school trip and other authorized leaves at least 72 hours before the beginning 
of such anticipated schedules. All make-up work, involving examinations and other class 
requirements, must be made up within seven (7) days after the absence occurs. 

It is the responsibility of the student to keep a record of his absences, to keep himself 
informed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examinations at the time 
prescribed by the instructor, and to turn in all assignments when they are due. 

STUDENT MISSIONARY PROGRAM 

Each year, several Oakwood students go to foreign lands and serve as missionaries. 
Their responsibilities range anywhere from religious leadership to teaching, to industrial/ 
vocational work. For details, contact the Department of Campus Ministries, Oakwood 
College. 

Following are the academic requirements for student missionaries: 
1 . The applicant must have attained at least sophomore standing (minimal 44 quarter 
hours) with a cumulative grade point average of "C" (2.00) or above, and no grade 



51 



below "C" in all English Composition and Grammar courses. 

2. The applicant must have a "B" (3.00) average or above in the subject area that he/ 
she is expected to teach as a student missionary. 

3. Upon completion of a year of satisfactory service as a student missionary, the student 
shall receive four (4) hours of elective credit on a "pass/fail" basis in the area of 
"Student Foreign Service." Quality of service is determined by a written evaluation 
from immediate supervisor or appropriate official over the student missionary. The 
student may opt for an additional four hours should he/she secure prior approval from 
in instructional department and through the Academic Policies Committee estab- 
lishing that more specialized mission services will be experienced such as, but not 
limited to, teaching certain academic disciplines. 

Student missionaries in active service are considered full-time O.C. students. 

ACADEMIC GRIEVANCE 

Any student who desires to express concern regarding instructional matters such as 
perceived unfairness, grading methodology, cheating, or some other misunderstanding 
within or without the classroom is encouraged to confer first with the teacher of the class 
and, if deemed necessary, with the teacher's department chairperson. If the matter is not 
resolved satisfactorily at the first two levels, the student should contact the Vice President 
for Academic Affairs. 

The Vice President for Academic Affairs will review the matter to (a) make a final 
determination of the matter, or (b) refer the matter to the Academic Appeals Committee 
for further review and recommendation. In either case the final decision is the respon- 
sibility of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. 

The Academic Appeals Committee, chaired by the student Academic Vice President 
of the United Student Movement (USM), receives referrals directly from the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs. Cases are referred to this committee if the Vice President 
for Academic Affairs determines more information is needed to make an equitable 
decision. The process is as follows: (a) the College Academic Vice President notifies the 
Chairperson of the Appeals Committee of the student's concern, (b) the aggrieved student 
submits a written report of the complaint to the chairperson of the Appeals Committee, 
(c) the Appeals Committee determines whether the concern should be reviewed by the 
Committee or referred to the College Academic Vice President for action without 
committee review, (d) if the matter is reviewed by the Appeals Committee a recommen- 
dation is made to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. 

The student or faculty member has the option to appear in person before the Appeals 
Committee, bringing documentation to support their views; however it is not required that 
they appear in person. It should be understood that the purpose of the appeals process is 
to peaceably resolve issues which have not been resolved through other means. There- 
fore, the approach to problem resolution in the appeals process is through consensus, so 
far as is possible. 

The membership of the Academic Appeals Committee consists of six individuals, that 
include: the USM Academic Vice President (chair), two elected student representatives, 
two full-time teaching faculty, and one full-time staff member. The Vice President for 
Academic Affairs or his/her designee may choose to sit with the Appeals Committee for 
purposes of hearing the discussion or for clarification of issues, but not for voting 



52 



purposes. 

After review, the Appeals Committee makes a recommendation of the College 
Academic Vice President for final action.

Introduction 

The purpose of the program in this department is to enable its students to 
develop a thorough understanding of and appreciation for the many exquisite 
I principles underlying the basic functions of the living organism. The curhculum is 
I designed to meet the needs of those students who plan to enter graduate or 
I professional schools, allied health schools, or those planning to teach within the 
elementary or secondary school. Opportunity is also available for laboratory 
I research experience for those planning to enter biomedical research careers. 
I The department is housed in a modern, spacious well equipped facility. All 

I programs (curricula) are periodically reviewed so that each remains relevant to 
I students needs in light of the ever changing field of modern science. Each faculty 
I member is ready and willing to individually assist students so that each can attain 
I his/her highest potential in the pursuit of academic excellence. 

Career Opportunities 

Biology, the study of living things is a science that has many specialities and 
existing opportunities for rewarding careers. Modern biology is pursuing the quest 
for a full understanding, at the molecular level, of the basic mechanisms 
underlying life processes. But modern biology is also concerned with current 
social issues related to human health, behavior, over-population, and those that 
impact on the earth's natural, life sustaining environment. Many more trained 
biologists will be needed, in addition to health professionals so that we can find 
an effective answer to the AIDS dilemma. 

Graduates from this department have gone on to distinguish themselves 
(and thereby have become active participants in the army of trained persons 
seeking solutions to some of mankind's vexing problems) in a variety of areas: 



59 



1 . Over the past three decades several graduates have matriculated into 
medical and dental schools. Several have since graduated and are 
presently making singular contributions in their professions. 

2. Many have matriculated in some of the most prestigious graduate 
schools and have since obtained either masters and or doctoral degrees 
in several sub disciplines in the life sciences. 

3. Presently several of our graduates are enrolled in both professional 
(medical, dental, optometry, pharmacy, schools of public health, etc.) 
and graduate schools. 

4. Some of our graduates are engaged in teaching biology and orthe other 
natural sciences in elementary and secondary schools in both the U.S. 
and in foreign countries. 

5. Some graduates are presently pursuing training in graduate of profes- 
sional schools with the intent to enter biomedical research careers. 

6. Other graduates are pursuing careers in the agricultural professions at 
both the technician and research scientist levels. 

7. More recently, several graduates have distinguished themselves in 
various fields in the allied health professions. 

Desirable High School Background 

Courses in biology, chemistry, general science and mathematics are all 
highly desirable and it is strongly recommend that all high school student wishing 
to pursue a career in the sciences take these classes. 

B.A. or B.S. in Biology 

A student majoring in biology may choose to follow either the B.A. program, 
the B.S. program, or B.A. or B.S. program with pre-med concentration. Students 
pursuing the B.A. or B.S. program will choose electives in consultation with their 
major advisors. Once electives have been agreed upon the student may not 
change except with the prior written approval of the advisor. 

Pre-medical students are required to follow either the B.A. or B.S. program. 
In the final quarter of the sophomore year (but no later than during the first quarter 
of the junior year), all pre-medical students must discuss premedical require- 
ments with their advisors. In addition to the required courses for the B.A. or B.S. 
program mentioned above, the pre-med student must take Bl 225, Bl 331 , Bl 480. 

B.S. in Biology Education 

Program Advisors: E. O. Jones, J.C. Hamer 

This program qualifies a person to teach secondary school biology and 
chemistry. A secondary education minor is included to provide a balance 
between professional education and subject area concentration. 

Important: Consult Program Advisor or the Department of Education for 



60 



admission to the Teacher Education Program. This curriculum will allow stu- 
dents, upon graduation, to apply for Alabama Class B Secondary: Biology, 
Chemistry, grades 7-12 and S.D.A. Basic Teaching Certificate: Biology, Chem- 
istry, grades 7 -12. 

DUAL DEGREE PROGRAMS IN NATURAL SCIENCE 

Students who have been accepted to accredited medical, dental, or optome- 
try schools before completing requirements for an undergraduate degree at 
Oakwood College may be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Natural Sciences 
upon successful completion of the first year of medical, dental, or optometry 
studies provided the following conditions are met: 

1. The student must complete three years in an accredited undergraduate 
program of which at least the last year must be taken in residence at Oakwood 
College. 

2. The student must provide proof from a professional school of medicine, 
dentistry, or optometry of successful completion of the first year of the respective 
professional school. 

The B.S. in Natural Sciences is the only degree awarded to such students 
regardless of their specific major pursued while in undergraduate school. 
Students who wish to apply for this degree must do so in writing to the Chair of 
Biological Sciences by September 15.

Introduction (Purpose) 

The mission of this department is threefold: 1) to prepare its students for 
acceptance into graduate and/or professional schools, 2) to give them the training 
required for employment in the laboratories of Government and industry, and 3) 
to prepare them for careers in teaching chemistry at the secondary level. While 
pursuing these objectives, the Department seeks to offer its students a quality 
program of chemical education that underscores the importance of the liberal arts 
and nurtures the integration of faith and reason. 

Career Opportunities 

"Ask an old chemist what he would like most, and his answer would be a young 
chemist." This statement describes the atmosphere of enthusiasm about 
chemistry and chemical research that permeated the Department. Indeed, 
chemistry at Oakwood is an exciting confrontation of the student with the theories, 
the methods, and the armamentarium of modern chemistry. Many of the 
graduates of this department have earned doctoral degrees in science, medicine, 
and dentistry from some of the most prestigious universities in this country and 
in Europe. Others have achieved successful careers in the laboratories of 
Government andilndustry. 

Science Education at Oakwood 

According to the August 1 981 edition of Essence Magazine: "Oakwood College 
in Alabama prepares more Blacks for success in medical and dental schools 
around the nation than all but four or five of the leading colleges in the country." 

In an article in the January 20, 1 986 edition of The New York Times, Oakwood 
College is listed as one of the 23 historically black colleges that are the most 
productive of Black scientific talent. 

According to statistics (1979) from the Association of American Medical Col- 
leges AAMC, Oakwood ranked FOURTH in the nation among all colleges and 

86 



universities supplying Black applicants to medical schools and eighth in the nation 
in the number of Black applicants accepted. Since then, Oakwood College has 
ranked among the top 15-20 colleges in the nation in supplying Black applicants 
to medical schools. 

Recommended Preparation 

Students planning to study chemistry at Oakwood should include as many 
science and mathematics courses as possible in high school, and they should 
endeavor to make superior grades in these courses. The following courses are 
strongly recommended: Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, and 
Physics. 

Description of Programs in Chemistry 

B.S. in Biochemistry - This program is designed to meet the needs of those 
students who are primarily interested in preparing for a career in medicine or 
biomedical research and who desire a more extensive background in chemistry, 
biology, and mathematics than is provided by the B.A. in Chemistry program 
having a premedical school emphasis. No minor is required for this program. See 
Curriculum Guide for Suggested Four- Year Program of Study. 

B.A. in Chemistry - Pregraduate School Emphasis: This program is designed 
to meet the needs of those chemistry majors who plan to pursue graduate study 
in chemistry. Such students will generally major in chemistry and major or minor 
in mathematics. See Curriculum Guide for Suggested Four-Year Program of 
Study. 

B.S. in Chemistry - This program is designed to meet the needs of those 
chemistry majors who are primarily interested in a professional career in chemistry. 
This program prepares the student either for work in the chemical industry or for 
advanced studies in graduate school. See Curriculum Guide for Suggested Four- 
Year Program of Study. 

B.S. in Chemistry Education - This program is designed to meet the needs of 
those chemistry majors who are primarily interested in preparing for a career in 
teaching chemistry at the secondary level. See Curriculum Guide for Check 
Sheet for Chemistry Education Majors. 

B.S. in Chemistry/Chemical Engineering - This is a cooperative dual degree 
program in which the student spends two years at Oakwood majoring in chemistry 
and three years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in chemical 
engineering. Following the successful completion of all requirements, UW- 
Madison will grant the degree of B.S. in Chemical Engineering and OC will grant 
the degree of B.S. in Chemistry. Because of the demanding and rigorous nature 
of this program, only students of superior academic potential GPA of 3.50 or 
better in both science and nonscience courses will be admitted to this program.

Allied Health Program at Oakwood College - The Department of Chemistry 
houses the Allied Health Program. The purposes of this program are to give 
advice and guidance to students considering the allied health careers, to aid in 
the placement of students in the professional schools of their choice, and to make 
sure that they are awarded the degree that follows successful completion of the 
clinical phase of their chosen programs. The following courses of pre-professional 
study are available within this program: 

Medical Technology 

Occupational Therapy 

Physical Therapy 
In addition to those mentioned above, the program also offers advisement 
on curricula to meet requirements for entrance into most allied health degree 
programs at many colleges and universities. We have current affiliations with the 
following institutions:

The MARC Program - The Oakwood College Minority Access to Research 
Careers (MARC) Program is funded by the National Institute of General Medical 
Sciences/National Institutes of Health. The major goal of the MARC Program is 
to increase the number of Oakwood College science graduates that successfully 
pursue advanced degrees and become scientists. Participants are honor 
students (3.0 G.P.A. or higher) majoring in Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, 
Behavioral Sciences, Nutrition, Mathematics/Computer Science whose main 
desires are to pursue advanced studies in academic graduate schools upon 
graduating from Oakwood College. 

The MARC courses listed are a fulfillment of one of the specific objectives 
of the MARC program, viz., to develop and implement a strong curriculum and 
thus facilitate entry into competitive graduate programs.

INTRODUCTION 

Mathematics may be classified according to two general categories, pure 
mathematics and applied mathematics. Pure mathematics is very abstract, and 
proof (in the sense of a deductive system) is its most important concern. On the 
other hand, applied mathematics has arisen out of attempts to solve problems in 
the natural sciences and, in particular, the physical sciences. This department 
proposes to present these two points of view as a combined and unified whole. 
The courses offered provide the necessary mathematical skills to allow students 
to pursue graduate work in mathematics, computer science, and engineering; 
teach in the secondary school; work in industry and government; and use 
mathematics as a tool in the physical, social, life, and management sciences. 

Career Opportunities in Mathematics 

Career in mathematics: teaching — the public school system, the junior or 
community college system, and the college or university system. The math- 
ematician in industry — computer mathematician, operation researcher, statisti- 
cian, classical engineering assistance, statistics, actuarial training, surveying 
assistance, research clerical accounting, cartography. 

Career Opportunities in Computer Science 

A degree in computer science will provide opportunities in teaching, industry, 
and government. Several firms employ persons to design and write programs for 
computer users. Computer manufacturers are major employers of well trained 
computer scientists. A graduate degree in computer science provides more 
opportunities in teaching and research. 

Recommended Preparation 

Although many colleges provide remedial work in mathematics, the potential 
mathematics major will be at an advantage if he/she acquires skills in algebra, 
geometry, and trigonometry while in high school. These subjects are needed for 
traditional college calculus.

Candidates for the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Applied Music areas and 
selected music majors can take a minor in music on a secondary instrument. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Students who wish to enter a degree program in music must first fulfill the 
basic admissions requirements of the college, and then seek admission within the 
Department of Music. 

All new entrants to the Department of Music must present a successful 
audition in voice or an instrument. Generally, auditions are held according to 
published schedule, but special appointments may be arranged where NEC- 
ESSARY, and applicants may submit tapes when auditions are not feasible. 
Auditions should include technical exercises, scales and arpeggios and at least 
three compositions of different penods and in different styles. At this audition, one 
composition is to be performed from memory. For additional information, see 
Department of Music. 

Students wishing to be admitted to Freshman classification as majors in applied 
music a^'eas ic^e-Derformance degree) must demonstrate on: 

Piano, the ability to play any scale or arpeggio in moderately rapid tempo, hands 
together: standard studies, such as Hanon or Czerny. Book I: easy classical 
sonatas and the Bach Little Preludes or Two-Part Inventions. 



Voice, a good natural voice and the ability to sing simple songs on pitch with 
correct phrasing and musical intelligence. 

Band/Orchestra/lnstruments. a thorough knowledge of the basic technique of 
ir,e cnosen ..nstfument; students must either bring their own instrument or make 
prior arrangements with the department: previous study of piano is desirable. 

All students are required to complete both an entrance audition in the performing 
medium and an entrance examination in music theory with a passing grade before 
one is considered as a music major or music minor. These examinations are taken 
early in the first quarter of studenfs study. Students must consult their major 
advisors assigned to them at registration, for exact date, time and place of each 
examination or audition. 

Deficiencies in musical background will require that the student take Basic 
Musicianship. MU 111-113 and Functional Piano which may result in an exten- 
sion of time in fulfilling the degree requirements.

The purpose of the Psychology Department is to provide a liberal arts, 
undergraduate foundation with a basic understanding of the principles, facts, 
approaches, and methods in psychology. The goal of the department is to aid the 
student (1) in acquiring knowledge and developing skills for entry level profes- 
sional service, (2) in preparing for entry in to graduate programs, (3) in receiving 
a Christian perspective of psychology, and (4) in understanding self and others 
better in an appreciation of the origin, nature, and process of individual differ- 
ences from the psychological viewpoint. 

Your Future in Psychology 

Human understanding and service is a great need among people today. 
Psychology graduates are entering all kinds of occupations in business, gov- 
ernmental and private human service agencies, and teaching. The bachelor's 
degree in psychology is a flexible and versatile way to prepare for a career in 
diverse lines of work — not just human services. Psychology graduates are 
upwardly mobile, but their advances are strongly correlated with training beyond 
the bachelor degrees. 

Desirable High School Background 

A strong academic background will be valuable. Social science, biology, and 
mathematics are specific courses which would be especially helpful for the 
potential psychology major. Some proficiency in computer skills will be beneficial. 

B.A. In Psychology - The B.A. degree in Psychology offers a broad study of 
behavior. This degree provides the academic preparation needed for the next 
highest grade: Graduate School. Most careers in psychology require a graduate 
degree. The B.A. degree in Psychology provides a scientific foundation of the 
field and can serve as the bridge between one's undergraduate and graduate 
education. 

B.S. in Psychology with a Counseling or Industrial/Organizational Emphasis 

- The B.S. degree with a Counseling or Industrial/Organizational emphasis offers 
an applied approach to the study of behavior. The B.S. degree provides the 



181 



student with opportunities to develop marketable knowledge, skills, and abilities. 
This degree can serve as the bridge between school and work.

Assistant Professors: Fraser, Mims 

IVIajor: Social Work (B.S.W.) 

Minor: Gerontology - , ' 

The primary objective of the Social Work Program is to prepare students for 
beginning practice in the Social Work profession. The core curriculum and field 
practicum provides the student with knowledge, skills and values necessary to 
perform specific task and services at the entry level. The program is accredited 
by the Council on Social Work Education. 

Students pursuing a major in social work, do not declare a minor. In order 
to apply for acceptance into the social work program, a student must have: 

1 . Completed 48 credit hours (core courses) 

2. A "C" average and submit an application to the Social Work Program. 

3. Students enrolled in Introduction to Social Welfare (SW 201) and

to the program. 

Applications for admission to the Social Work Program are available in the 
department chairperson's office. 

Social Work majors are required to complete 500 clock hours in an assigned 
social service agency. The amount of time spent in agencies, renders students 
unable to carry more than one other course (four additional hours) while engaged 
in field practice.

THE STUDENT. 

Students in other disciplines who wish to acquire a basic understanding of 
social work principles may avail themselves of the several courses not reserved 
for majors. 

Detailed information on the Social Work Major is outlined in the Social Work 
Student Handbook, available from the Departmental office. 

The Gerontology minor is provided for any student who is interested in 
working with the elderly and/or who may want to have knowledge of this segment 
of the population which continues to grow. Students in Psychology, Religion, 
Theology, Nursing, Human Development and Family Studies, Pre-Med, and 
other disciplines may find courses in this area extremely relevant.

and who desires minimal preparation in Bible Instructorship, a two-year curricu-

Entrance to the college does not necessarily qualify a student for admission 
to the Ministerial Theology program. Students who desire to be admitted must file 
a formal application with the Department of Religion and Theology the first quarter 
of their sophomore year at which time a list of standards for admission and 
candidacy will be given them. These standards include such requirements as, I) 
a battery of diagnostic tests for understanding of themselves and their vocation, 
2) a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.00, 3) demonstrated proficiency in English commu- 
nication particularly by passing EN 101,102,103, and 4) evidence of moral, 
emotional, social, and physical maturity. Students are admitted to the Ministerial 
Theology program upon approval by the Religion and Theology faculty at the 
beginning of the junior or third year. The purpose of this admission procedure lies 
in its helping the student to understand his or her call to ministerial service, and 
only those students who complete these requirements will be recommended as 
prospects for ministerial employment.

ministry and the increased need for training in also a non-ministerial profession, 
IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT EVERY THEOLOGY MAJOR HAVE 
ALSO A DOUBLE (or SECOND) MAJOR in which case no MINOR is required.

New Testament, Greek vocabulary building through word studies, and 
elementary Greek work classifications. The course will emphasize some 
advanced principles of exegesis. Primary emphasis in the course relates to 
the use of Greek as a research tool and as a tool for more effective preaching. 
Each quarter of Intermediate N.T. Greek requires a one-hour weekly lab in 
addition to regular course work. Prerequisite: BL 201-202-203. 

BL 303 INTERMEDIATE NEW TESTAMENT GREEK 2 hours 

A more advanced coverage of Intermediate New Testament Greek, includ- 
ing an introduction to the Greek Septuagint and the Apocrypha in anticipation 
of studies in Biblical Hebrew. This course also introduces the student to the 
New Testament Apocrypha and selected Greek Patristic writings. Each 
quarter of Intermediate N.T. Greek requires a one-hour weekly lab in addition 
to regular course work. Prerequisite: BL 301-302. 

BL 411-412 BEGINNING CLASSICAL HEBREW 4-4 hours 

A survey of the most prevalent language found in the Old Testament with 
emphasis on syntax, sentence structure, vocabulary, reading and transla- 
tion. The objective is not only to better equip the student for graduate work 
in Biblical study but also to provide him with a useful tool toward an accurate 
interpretation and understanding of the Bible during his college career and 
during his personal study. Because Hebrew is not required in the theological 
curriculum, it is offered only upon special request to the Religion Department.
